Re: Accessing u-boot variables from linux

Well I'm making progress ; after carefully looking into flash, and reading the u-boot docs, I managed to get fw_printenv working with this configuration : # MTD device name Device offset Env. size Flash sector size /dev/mtd0 0x050000 0x002000 0x002000 /dev/mtd0 0x060000 0x002000 0x002000 But fw_sete...

Re: Accessing u-boot variables from linux

Yes I did indeed :

Code: Select all

root@bubba:~# fw_printenv 
Warning: Bad CRC, using default environment
bootcmd=bootp; setenv bootargs root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=${serverip}:${rootpath} ipm
bootdelay=5
baudrate=115200

Re: Accessing u-boot variables from linux

I did notice the 0x50000 area in the flash content and tried to write the fw_env.config this way : # MTD device name Device offset Env. size Flash sector size Number of sectors /dev/mtd0 0x050000 0x010000 0x010000 However it doesn't work. I think that either the configuration is incorrect or the set...

Re: Accessing u-boot variables from linux

Does anyone know how to get this to work on the bubba two ? I just managed to make my bubba boot on a raid-1 device, and I would like to write an howto about it ; However it requires a change in the u-boot environment, and it would be nice to avoid the serial cable prerequisite :wink: . So far I ins...

Re: B2 won't accept DHCP Offer in rescue mode

So I started trying to diagnose this issue with my brand new serial console access :P. Here is my test environment : - A Bubba 2 with the 2.4RC1 image on a FAT32 usb disk, DO_INSTALL=0 in bubba.cfg - A laptop with debian squeeze with static IP adress 192.168.1.1/24 on eth0, without firewall - busybo...

Re: ip rule kernel support

I recompiled the kernel to enable this feature too, but it would be nice to have it in the official kernel also. The option is IP_ADVANCED_ROUTER.

Re: B2 rev RD serial access

I just received my new FTDI cable. After a quick test, I soldered it to the board, and it works fine. Awesome !

Re: B2 rev RD serial access

After a contact with FTDI, they suggested a very simple test I didn't think about : contact the TX and the RX wires together on the cable, open a console and see if sent characters echo back. Which didn't work so I sent back the cable for an exchange. I shall keep you posted when I'll receive the ne...

Re: B2 rev RD serial access

I'm tryning to get my console to work, but I have difficulties. I bought a FTDI USB-TTL converter as advised on the wiki (TTL-232RG-VREG3V3-WE) and had it soldered on my motherboard as described in the previous post. Then plugged in my computer and started minicom. The COM parameters are 115200 8bit...

Re: B2 won't accept DHCP Offer in rescue mode

Hello,

I have the same issue with rescue mode, and just tried with a DHCP on a 192.168.1.x network, it doesn't work either.

Re: Running Debian lenny or squeeze on Bubba Two

Hello, I've started to play with the 2.3E image, to see wether it may solve my printing issue on 2.0. So far so good, it still prints after a reboot, which is quite an achievement, we'll see in the long run ! However would it be possible to release also the kernel sources for this version (or at lea...
